Sweet 16 NCAA Tournament Game Intrigue Rankings

Here is my (mostly objective/slightly subjective) ranking of Sweet 16 games from most anticipated to least anticipated. The main factors considered were: the possibility of an upset, likelihood of a close game, and the existence of other story lines that enhance the appeal of a particular game. At the end of the round, I will create a second list and which ranks each of these games after they are played.
